  • You could buy books online. I love to read so thats what I would be doing. If you like crafts and that kind of stuff that could take up some time. Have friends come by and visit. Watch movies... Start a journal. Hang in there.

  • Uh Oh!! Why did they put you on bed rest?

    Send someone out for magazines, watch movies, make a facebook account if you don't already one, finish up small projects for the baby that you can do in bed...sorry I know it's boring!!

    I've been there and done that...NOT FUN!

  • When I was put on bed rest I started watching a series that I never saw before! You can rent them at the library for free and it helped to have hours go by. I watched Lost and was hooked! Season 24 is a good one to get into if you havent seen that. There are a lot of seasons to keep you busy. Also you could journal write about your pregnancy, call friends, scrap book, Try and write a kids book for fun,
    have friends sleep over.

  • Ugh, I'm sorry, I was on bed rest to for 2 months, it is very difficult! But just think of it this way, it is for the health and well being of ur baby, and it is the first notch of the MANY to come in ur mommy belt, one of the first sacrifices for ur little one =) I started a Christmas stocking for my son, that took up a lot of time! I also got Netflix! Keeping a journal really helped me, it felt good to write down what I was feeling! I know it doesn't feel like it now mama, but the time will fly by! Good luck, if u ever need to chat, u can message me anytime!

  • You could start writing down family history for the baby, or write down funny stories about you and dad meeting, and things about when you were pregnant like weird cravings. You could also start scrapbooking and just add pics after the baby arrives. Or you could take up crocheting. You could easily have a blanket done before the baby gets here.
